More About Coach Diane

I am the Assistant Track & Field Coach at Monroe College; a Division 1 Junior College that have sent many athletes to Division 1/4-Year Colleges on Full Scholarships.

I have coached from K-12 in the NYC Public School system and privately (all ages). I have over 20 Years of coaching experience. I have my USATF Level 1 Track & Field Coach Certification.

I am a retired Olympic Track and Field athlete who has made the United States National, World Championship, Pan American, Goodwill Games and Olympic Teams from 1983 to 1992. Known to her contemporaries as the "Indoor Queen," blazed a trail in track and field, earning her an Olympic Gold Medal in the Los Angeles Games. Ms. Dixon is no stranger to challenges and achievement. Ranked nationally and internationally since 1980 in the women's 400 meters, she has captured an unprecedented 11 indoor national titles in the 400 meters - more than any male or female in any event. She has held the American and Indoor World Records for the 300 meters, 400 Meters, 440 yards and 500 meters.

In 1984, she qualified and made her first Olympic Team and was awarded a Gold Medal in the 4x400-meter relay in the Los Angeles Games. In 1988, she won the United States Olympic Trials in the 400 Meters, placing her tops in the world ranking. The USA team took home the Silver Medal in the 4x400-meter relay, which set the Current American Record for that event in Seoul, Korea in a time of 3.15.51 and still stands 27 years later. In 1991, she became the first American Woman to win a World Indoor Championship Title. She captured the 400 Meters and set an American Indoor Record with a time of 50.64, which stood until 2010. In 1999, I became the first woman to be inducted into the inaugural Millrose/Madison Square Garden Track and Field Hall of Fame.

Diane attended Brooklyn Technical High School, and had over 200 scholarship offers and chose "The" Ohio State University .

I will focus on speed and endurance and multiple workouts to make them faster. My workouts are consistent with the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer focusing on getting athletes in shape to compete.

Client Reviews

Great coach, did a lot first session and I feel great. Thank you!

Our first session with Coach Diane was excellent!! She took a few moments to assess my daughter’s running mechanics then immediately developed activities to address speed, form, and endurance. She is extremely knowledgeable and is well connected to other coaching resources, particularly at the collegiate level.

We found this to be very rewarding and will definitely recommend Coach Diane to others, especially those that want to take things to the next level.

Very professional, guided me in the right direction towards meeting my goals, looking forward to the next session

Coach Diane is amazing, my 15 year old daughter absolutely loved the sessions she had with her last summer. Issy is a field hockey player and wanted to improve her speed and agility before the start of the season, Coach Diane tailored the sessions specifically to Issy's needs, even watching games beforehand to help her understand exactly which exercises would be beneficial. Coach D is a committed, dedicated coach who really inspires her athletes to work hard and be best that they can be. Her sessions are challenging; she knew just how far to push Issy, but they are also great fun and really enjoyable. I can definitely recommend Coach Diane to help improve performance, whatever you chosen sport.

One session in and Coach Dixon had a plan to improve upon 5 areas of which I was aware but had been unable to address on my own. We are on our journey to fix it all and I am grateful for the teammate and the task master!

Coach Dixon is phenomenal. She is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She recommended some dynamic drills and stretches I had never done before that were really helpful. Furthermore, her workout was really difficult, but she encouraged me all the way through. Despite my being a high school junior, she treated me with respect and the utmost professionalism. Her credentials are second to none, and her expertise and personality made the session both enjoyable and incredibly informative. If you are looking for a track and field coach at any level or skill, look no further- Coach Dixon is the best!!!

Coach D connected with my child right away. She helped with her form and motivation and we saw results with just one sessions. My daughter really enjoyed the session!! We would definitely recommend!!

Coach Diane is a true professional. Contacted her and was able to link up with her right away for a session with my 10 yr old daughter. My daughter responded extremely well with Coach Diane and was able to gain a lot of good knowledge. We"re looking forward to future sessions.

Coach Diane is unquestionably among the highest-caliber professionals I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Not only putting me through a course of work the likes of which I've never experienced, but radiating competence and kindness before, during, and after our session, she left me utterly convinced that working with her was the surest way of achieving my goals.
I'll be working closely with her, then, and whatever your athletic goals--sharpening athletic performance; improving crossfit/obstacle race performance; preparing for military/LEO/specops qualification; securing track and field glory on the college, national, or international stages; even just finally getting in real shape--I cannot recommend strongly enough that you do same.

Coach Diane is a super Coach, She coaches my twin girls, it all started with one of my girls, the other not interested in track, she observed how much fun her sister had when training, she joined in, they love their Coach Diane. I recommend her to anyone who wants to excel at track and field, the coach has breathed the rare air at the highest levels of track and field, who would be a better person to map out the path to success, whether just to get in shape or go for a Gold Medal, your entire family is in great, capable proven hands of Coach Diane.

Diane Dixon is an excellent and knowledgable coach, she is simply the best. She is able to analyze my son's abilities from day one and develop a superb training program for him. She is patient, caring and at the same time very focus on enhancing his abilities.
Coach Dixon makes the program very uplifting due to her sense of humor and her diverse method of training. Every day it's something new. My son looks forward to his training sessions. From medicine balls, to battle ropes, resistance bands, and boxing gloves, coach Dixon loves to mix it up.
I am sure my son will accomplish his goals with coach Diane in his corner. After a few weeks, he had shown drastic improvements in his abilities.

Coach Diane was terrific, my daughter's form improved greatly in just 1 session. Looking forward to working with her in future

Meeting Coach Diane was a wonderful experience and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with her. Her insights and critiques are already enabling me to improve my performance and my mindset about how I prepare for a race and my day to day running activities. I am looking forward, hopefully, to meeting with her in the future and continuing to improve my skill set. I would strongly recommend Coach Diane to anyone looking to improve not only their physical skills but also their mental preparation for running. My thanks for a great time - Colin Patrick O'Shea

Coach Diane was great! I feel confident that through training with her I will be able to meet my goals and crush my event in June. Starting with a good warm-up, some sprints, and form work I already felt better when I left the gym than when I arrived. I look forward to future sessions!

I had a great first training session with Diane. She is very knowledgeable and positive and I am confident she can help me achieve my goals.

Dear Coach Dixon, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to allow me to train with you. I will be graduating high school this year and am so excited to be able to be part of our program. Your endless devotion to coaching personally is what I admire about you. You are always so inspiring and confident. You allow me to be the very best without any limits. And yes, I would love to attend a D1 College on a track scholarship and with your assistance, I feel more confident than ever that you can take me to the next level.
